I grew up reading comic books wanting to be a superhero. Comics taught me that those who speak the truth are heroes, all the rest are liars.

Time To Circle The Wagons?

The Bu$h Administration is under attack...Look for more to unravel from now through February. This won't go away, won't be acceptable, won't be managed and can't ignored. All the lipstick in the world won't make this pig more kissable...and if they revert to the old ways...Look for the terror alert to be raised...afterall... there's no legitimate way to defend their repeated pattern of intentionally breaking the law.

Al Gore responds to the idiot king's jester:
There are two problems with the Attorney General's effort to focus attention on the past instead of the present Administration's behavior. First, as others have thoroughly documented, his charges are factually wrong. Both before and after the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act was amended in 1995, the Clinton/Gore Administration complied fully and completely with the terms of the law.

Second, the Attorney General's attempt to cite a previous administration's activity as precedent for theirs - even though factually wrong - ironically demonstrates another reason why we must be so vigilant about their brazen disregard for the law. If unchecked, their behavior would serve as a precedent to encourage future presidents to claim these same powers, which many legal experts in both parties believe are clearly illegal.
